IMHO it depends. AFAIK the web application has to behave well.
Therefore it does not make sense to deploy Medusa if your
application has to wait for long-lasting blocking I/O operations
(like slow database connection with only synchronous API calls).

And AFAIK using traditional CGI-BIN programs also needs forking
under Medusa. You're lost on Win98...

Or did I get something wrong?

Ciao, Michael.
